Killing Two Birds With One Social Network

Mike Mueller's Blog Class @ Keller Williams in BerkeleyEarlier today I finally cracked the 10,000 point mark here on Active Rain.  I've been stuck in the 9900's for a while with a wicked case writer's block and I've been thinking of how I was going to celebrate breaking 10k for a while now.

Like all active members eventually realize, I get that AR isn't about the points, it's about the connections and the conversations.  That's why it was cool that I cracked the milestone while sitting in Mike Mueller's blogging class and leaving a comment on a post that he created during the class.

Which brings me to the second milestone. 

Meeting Mike in person today marked the first time that I've made a real life connection directly from ActiveRain.  A few weeks ago, Mike contacted me and offered to teach his beginning blog class to our Keller Williams office and together we made it happen. 

In case you're wondering, Mike's as genuine as he seems and his class is full of dynamite info and taught in a way that's non threatening to an agent who is new to the social web.

So in closing, I'd like to thank Mike and everyone else that I've connected with through ActiveRain.  You all are what makes this place special.  I look forward to meeting more of you "in real life".

Hi Andy,

I've seen your face around Facebook, etc...  Nice to put some words with the face.  I wrote a post on how to get 100,000 points.  10,000?  hmmm A few weeks?  :)

Hi Andy and congratulations. I am slowly getting into the swing of blogging. I am still below 10,000, but getting there. Ardell - 100,000? Wow - you are the role model. How many hours a week do you spend blogging?

Ardell-Thanks for the comment.  I'm convinced that you blog telepathically.  There's no way that you can put of that much content without leaving a trail of flaming keyboards in your wake. 

Artur- Thanks for stopping by.  Always nice to see another Bay Area colleague around here.

Congrats on your AR point success Im trying to get up there too. Blogging class sounds interesting, I just wonder what the person speaking would be like. Im thinking that it would pretty much a marketing/creative writting seminar.

Rick- Thanks.  The person speaking was Mike Mueller who keeps a fairly high profile around here.  That first link in the post is a resource page that he build as a companion to his class.  There's some good stuff there.

Paul- Mike was nice enough to come into our office to teach the class & I didn't need to find him, he found me In fact, ^^ there's the man himself. Check him out & subscribe to his blog.
